Rivaroxaban in atrial fibrillation cardioversion: an update.

Carlo Lavalle, Martina Straito, Annalisa Caroli, Agostino Piro, Giuseppe Giunta, Marco Valerio Mariani, Francesco Fedele,

Currently, atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common sustained cardiac arrhythmia, with a prevalence of about 2-3% in the general population, representing a powerful risk factor for stroke and systemic thromboembolism and increased mortality and morbidity. Restoration of sinus rhythm is an important treatment option in AF and has a ... Read more >>

Detection of Silent Atrial Fibrillation aFter Ischemic StrOke (SAFFO) guided by implantable loop recorder: multicentre Italian trial based on stroke unit network with paired cardio-arrhythmology units (Italian Neurocardiology Unit Network).

Danilo Toni, Svetlana Lorenzano, Stefano Strano, ,

<h4>Rationale</h4>Atrial fibrillation is associated with a high risk of stroke and its prevalence increases in subjects aged ≥65 years. After an ischemic stroke, the use of standard monitoring methods may underestimate the detection rate of atrial fibrillation. Hence, it is very likely that even patients having a first atherothrombotic or ... Read more >>

Comparison of partners-heart failure algorithm vs care alert in remote heart failure management.

Leonardo Calo', Annamaria Martino, Claudia Tota, Alessandro Fagagnini, Renzo Iulianella, Marco Rebecchi, Luigi Sciarra, Giuseppe Giunta, Maria Grazia Romano, Roberto Colaceci, Antonio Ciccaglioni, Fabrizio Ammirati, Ermenegildo de Ruvo,

<h4>Aim</h4>To compare the utility of the partners-heart failure (HF) algorithm with the care alert strategy for remote monitoring, in guiding clinical actions oriented to treat impending HF.<h4>Methods</h4>Consecutive cardiac resynchronization-defibrillator recipients were followed with biweekly automatic transmissions. After every transmission, patients received a phone contact in order to check their health ... Read more >>

Necrosis of the nipple-areola complex in breast reduction. Our personal way to solve problem.

Giuseppe Colombo, Alessandro Garlaschi, Roberto Stifanese, Giuseppe Giunta, Vittorio Ruvolo,

Necrosis of the NAC is a condition that penalizes patients who underwent breast reduction surgery or mastopexy. Breast reduction is a widely used technique for over-sized breasts. Breast hypertrophy, in fact, can cause the onset of many issues--both aesthetical and pathological--because of the excessive weight that the breasts exert on ... Read more >>

Changes in subcutaneous adipose tissue microRNA expression in HIV-infected patients.

Nicola Squillace, Elena Bresciani, Antonio Torsello, Alessandra Bandera, Alessandra Bandera, Francesca Sabbatini, Chiara Giovannetti, Giuseppe Giunta, Luca Rovati, Massimo Del Bene, Vittorio Locatelli, Andrea Gori,

<h4>Objectives</h4>We evaluated the possibility that a pattern of abnormal microRNA (miRNA) expression could be fuelling the mechanisms causing HIV-associated lipodystrophy (HAL).<h4>Methods</h4>In this case-control study, samples of subcutaneous adipose tissue from eight consecutive HIV-infected patients on combination antiretroviral therapy with HAL (cases) were compared with those of eight HIV-negative subjects (controls). ...

Upstream effect for atrial fibrillation: still a dilemma?

Leonardo Calò, Annamaria Martino, Luigi Sciarra, Antonio Ciccaglioni, Ermenegildo De Ruvo, Lucia De Luca, Antonella Sette, Giuseppe Giunta, Ernesto Lioy, Francesco Fedele,

Atrial fibrillation is the most common arrhythmia in clinical practice. Ion channel blocking agents are often characterized by limited long-term efficacy and several side effects. In addition, ablative invasive procedures are neither easily accessible nor always efficacious. The "upstream therapy," which includes angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, aldosterone receptor antagonists, statins, glucocorticoids, ... Read more >>

Leonardo Calò, Marco Rebecchi, Antonella Sette, Annamaria Martino, Ermenegildo de Ruvo, Luigi Sciarra, Lucia De Luca, Lorenzo Maria Zuccaro, Giuseppe Giunta, Antonio Ciccaglioni, Ernesto Lioy, Francesco Fedele,

<h4>Background</h4>Inappropriate sinus tachycardia (IST) is characterized by an elevated heart rate (HR) at rest and an exaggerated HR response to physical activity or emotional stress. Beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers are the first-line therapy but sometimes are poorly tolerated due to side effects.<h4>Objective</h4>The purpose of this study was to evaluate ...
